One maverick, two....

McCain keeps calling McCain-Palin a “team of mavericks.” Isn’t that a contradiction in terms?

And as long as we’re on the subject, when McCain talks about himself as a maverick, he means to depict himself as one who bucked his party leaders, but isn’t he also saying that in his 25 years in Congress he has been unable to convince anyone (besides Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman) to follow him? Isn’t “maverick” another way of saying “failed leader”?
